    I think it depends on your previous scores. My CA2 scores were significantly better than CA1. I believe my CA2 score helped to match within my top 3.

    Personally, I went ahead and submitted my application prior to my CA-2 ITE scores and then sent updates once the scores went out. I don't think sending the app without the scores hurt me and having the application in early may have helped me get my foot in the door at a few places.

    I ended up not applying to Peds, but now I am regretting it. I don't have the greatest ITE scores but would like to try to get a spot. How hard is it to find a place outside of the match? Do places like Boston Children's still have rolling acceptances or has that all changed? And how heavily do they weigh ITE scores??

    It can't hurt to call around. The out of match spots are usually reserved for superstars with "you must train this applicant and then we want them back" kind of LORs. At least the ones I'm familiar with. You can also just get an AMC job, pass the written boards, and apply then.
    The way bad ITE scores hurt is that if the fellowship is worried you won't pass the boards they don't want anything to do with you. If you can't get a job after the fellowship it becomes "our" problem and then we all look bad. You don't have that problem when you don't accept candidates with <50th percentile scores.

    Well Dr. Martin was made to leave the program & since then the whole program is in a self destruction mode. There is no accademic activity going on. It is very biased towards ethenic groups and I would not consider Arkansas Children's Hospital for fellowship or job... If I were you

    I would take Arkansas (Little Rock) off the list... That place is in a death spiral.... The newly hired chief was fired a few months ago.... he was a total waste of time
